GQT Gardening Techniques brings together the wisdom - and wit - of four of the Gardeners' Question Time panellists, providing novice gardeners and experienced amateurs alike with advice on everything from planting to pruning, from building a pond to lining a hanging basket. With copious experience of listening to gardeners' questions, the panellists anticipate every necessity of the gardening calendar and every stage in the process of reaching your garden's full potential. Encouraging you to clear sites for ponds and raised beds, propagate from seed, grow hothouse exotica, rejuvenate plants with pruning, protect against infestation and much, much more, this store of professional tips and techniques will make you an expert in no time. Throughout the book, the voices of the authors can be clearly heard, making this not only a valuable reference, but a personal, often opinionated conversation with some of Britain's favourite gardeners.
